Wipe Out Credit Card Debt and Most Other Non priority Unsecured Debts with Local Bankruptcy Attorney Wilkes-Barre, PA bankruptcy Attorney C. Stephen Gurdin Jr.
Bankruptcy is very good at wiping out unsecured credit card debt (the debt is unsecured if you didn’t promise to give back the purchased property if you didn’t pay the bill), medical bills, overdue utility payments, personal loans, gym contracts. (If you have a secured credit card, such as from a jewelry, furniture, or electronics store, you’ll have to give the purchased item back.) In fact, filing for bankruptcy can wipe out most non priority unsecured debts other than school loans.
How quickly you wipe out credit card debt will depend on the chapter you file:
- Chapter 7 bankruptcy. This chapter takes an average of three to four months to complete. (Learn more in Your Debt in Chapter 7 Bankruptcy.)
- Chapter 13 bankruptcy. If you file for Chapter 13 rather than Chapter 7, you’ll likely have to pay back some portion of your unsecured debts through a three- to five-year repayment plan.
- However, any unsecured debt balance that remains after completing your repayment plan will be discharged. (See Your Debts in Chapter 13 Bankruptcy.)
